    June, Rest in Peace. June was always nice and respectful to me. My condolences to the Hall and Kent family.

  10. RIP Uncle June, onward to your next journey. Love you and will miss you always.



  12. To My Son Michael, May God provide you peace and strength during this time. I cannot believe that your Dad, June is no longer with us. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.
    To Linda, Rodney & the entire family, I love & pray for you all.
    Hozie was a strong black man who was “oh so stubborn” and he stood his ground. He was a great father to 2 sons Mike & Josh who will carry on his legacy and be the men he raised them to be. My heart is broken…weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning.

  13. Condolences from our family to yours.
    I have known Hozie since I was a little girl, and he was a constant part of life for a long time. He was a quiet and kind, gentle soul. He could also be really funny. I will always remember his big booming voice, and the way he used to comb his tiny afro forward.
    May the ancestors welcome him with open arms and keep him in peace.

  14. Joshua Benson Hall

    Dad, I still can’t believe that you are no longer here. I just wanted to say thank you for everything you have taught me and my brother. Your love for the both of us was unconditional. I love you with all my heart and we will meet again. Continue to look down on us ❤️ And me and Mike will continue to make you very proud. I love you

  20. My deepest and sincere sympathies to Rodney, Linda, Michael, Joshua, family and friends of Hozie ” June” Hall.
    I pray our Heavenly Father blesses you all with his Grace and Mercy as you prepare to lay your beloved in his final resting place.
    It was an honor, privilege and a blessing to have known such a remarkably, kind and honest man as Hozie.
    Rest In Peace my friend you will be missed until we meet again.

  21. Although I didn’t know Mr. Hall very well because he was a private man. We had the pleasure of being his neighbors for two years and he was kind enough to allow us to park in front of his home. He would wave and honk the horn as he rode by. I’m saddened by his passing and know that he is protected by the Lord! Sending prayers to his family and just know he will always be by your side.

  22. To the Hall family, I worked with him for only 2 months did not get to know him. When no one had heard from him at work for over a week I got concerned. I located his address via internet and went to his house and asked a neighbor had she seen him. We requested a wellness check and that’s when it was discovered he had passed away.

  24. My deepest condolences to the entire family. I worked with Hozie for the last 10 years. He was such a kind and gentle person. Always looking out for others. He always had an encouraging word. He would always greet me with a, “hey little sis” and was always eager to help. It was difficult to say goodbye today. I will miss you friend and brother.

  25. To my Dear Father, I couldn’t find words to say before now but I think I’m ready. My Baby girl was born two days ago and all I can think of is how much I wish you were here to see her! I miss you so much!!!! But I know that God has a reason for everything! Thank you for being all that you have been to me for all of my life and I pray that I can be to my children what you were to me and Josh!! Rest well Pop!!!

    Hey Dad, how are you? I miss you very much. There has been a lot of things going on and I wish that I could call and tell you. There is not a day that goes by where I don’t think of you you are on my mind 24/7 ! I miss you and wish you were here. I’m getting ready to finish college. I want to go into radio production, maybe even become a DJ like you, I wish you was here to teach me 🙁 I love you❤️ and like I said before me and Michael are going to continue to make you proud. Take care daddy ❤️❤️
